I am not a developer, but as a user I consider it questionable to
make the entire operability of the editing system dependent on the
nature of some additional external plugins. If this is realized, a
look at the error handling of existing applications might be
helpful. Or a switch that generally prevents integration at
startup. As an emergency nail, so to speak.

I agree with that. In addition, these plug-ins take us into areas
that are usually reserved for sound engineers. An interface to
Ardour and, as mentioned above, to Natron would be an enrichment for
multi-talents and a relief for the cutter.
